The objective of this project is to virtualize large-scale outdoor environments using omni-directional dynamic imaging. Firstly we have constructed omni-directional imaging systems, and then developed a number of algorithms of extrinsic camera parameter estimation from captured images and GPS positioning, 3D reconstruction of scene, and free-viewpoint image generation by integrating model-based and image-based approaches. Finally prototype systems of augmented virtuality have been developed and successfully demonstrated by experiments opened to the public.
